(Disclosure: This wine was received as a press sample.) From Lineshack in the San Antonio Valley in Montery County comes Deep, dark, thick, purple bubbles going into the decanter. This is Petite Sirah. Concentrated, tannic, full-bodied, gritty, manly, and grapey. A bit rough around the edges, but likeable for its in-your-face honesty. Unrefined, but softens with air - in fact, it becomes more and more enjoyable as it breathes.
Tasted blind and guessed to be $12. Actually runs closer to $15-17.
